Superheroes! Assembly

Superheroes! Assembly

'Superheroes!' is one of a series of outstanding assemblies created for primary school children, which includes full script songs and prayers with a part for every child. This assembly is ready to go! ‘Superheroes’ links with many areas of the National Curriculum, including the: English, Music, Drama and PSHE spheres, with a theme that is rooted in upstanding values and is relevant to the children’s everyday lives and interests –including a healthy ‘self-esteem’ injection for all! This assembly is all about recognising the ‘superhero’ in you, giving each child the chance to shine by stating their own unique ‘superhero’ power – from amazing reading skill or artistic genius to the sports star or reliable friend. The assembly also teaches to spot the ‘superhero’ in others and to be thankful for those who support and and save us in a hundred little ways every day. There is a part for every child – whether acting, singing, dancing or leading a prayer! Plans created by an Ofsted Good/Outstanding primary school teacher – History and Drama co-ordinator – with over ten years of experience. These outstanding assemblies have consistently engaged and excited all 30 performers in class… and have even got the adults in the audience up on their feet!

Full Script of  a play/musical of Oliver Twist

Full Script of a play/musical of Oliver Twist

This is a script that has been performed successfully by primary school aged children with adults, but can be performed by high school age and above. It's 1 hour without an interval but has been written as two 30 minute Acts. Including the music adds about 10 minutes on each Act. The lines are suitable for children to learn (in our performance Oliver and Dodger were 8 years old) and has a suitable ending for a children's production. The cover picture gives you an idea of costume and staging. I have had media consents to use this picture.
